Strings & Sol: The Ultimate Bluegrass Vacation

Music at Strings & Sol

In 2019, Strings & Sol featured an incredible lineup of musicians performing on multiple unique stages. After afternoon shows at the poolside gazebo stage, we danced in the sand for main stage sets. Late nights were spent in the open air palapa and special guests popped up everywhere.

Poolside Sets

Ahh the good life. Our days were spent lounging in the sun and drifting on pool floaties in bluegrass bliss. Our paradise included never-ending cocktails – from the swim up bar or delivered poolside – to pair with our favorite artists picking away while we sang our hearts out.

Pickin' at the Palapa

We met under the central Palapa each night and kept the party going with more bluegrass tunes, friends, multiple bars, and a photo booth. Once Main Stage shows ended, the warm Caribbean breeze rolled through the Palapa as we boogied down.


Between waking up in paradise and incredible shows every night came a full schedule of curated activities designed to bring fans and artists together. Days started with yoga overlooking the ocean and continued with fun programming ranging from artist-hosted workshops, poolside games, and special sets.

Theme Nights

One of the best parts about Strings & Sol is always getting creative for our annual theme night. Where else can you bring out the glittery cape and tie dye suit?! We made sure to have a Spooktacular night showed up dressed up for Friday the 13th – from black cats to ghouls, and everything in between.


Some grabbed a snorkeling mask and went out on a Catamaran for the day and others swung through the lush jungle into a local cenote. We soaked in the culturally rich Riviera Maya as we spent four days & nights in beautiful Puerto Morelos, Mexico close to attractions in Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

Home Away From Home

All-inclusive resorts Now Sapphire & Dreams were the home bases of our 2019 tropical music vacation. Some guests stayed close to the stages and event activities while others just down the beach enjoying a more luxurious experience. At night, we all met on the beach to dance in the sand while our favorite artists performed in the concert venue of a lifetime.
